Here Be Monsters Launches Worldwide

Here Be Monsters combines the real with the mythical – players travel the globe trapping over 100 mythical monsters drawn from the legends of different cultures.  They start their adventure in London where they join the Ministry of Monsters as a new recruit and are quickly caught up in the plots of an evil dragon and the lives of the local inhabitants.

As they travel the world, players discover hundreds of local resources from different countries which they can use to build ingenious traps and baits. Thousands of in game items have been painstakingly researched and hand illustrated. Exotic items such as fruit trees, wildflowers, fish, gems and butterflies are all correctly located in the regions they originate from. Players build ever more elaborate traps to capture the local monsters, while the baits required for each monster are influenced by both legend and local cuisine.

Players also create, manage and upgrade a Homestead which they can place anywhere in the world. This forms their base of operations and here they’ll farm other resources and optimise their crafting production lines. It’s also a great place to show off souvenirs from their travels around the world.

New quests are developed episodically, with hundreds available at worldwide launch and the team continuing to release new content every month. The first season is based in London and Europe, with the action then moving to Nanjing for season two.  A further 4 seasons based on other continents around the world will follow.

The global launch also marks the release of the first localised version of the game – Portuguese Brazilian – with more languages to come.

Here Be Nuptials: Wedding Bells for the Here Be Monsters Community

Here Be Monsters celebrated its first community wedding on May 1st when Lisa and Chris of Olympia near Seattle tied the knot.

The game started life on Facebook where Lisa and Chris met in the fan run guild The Mudskippers.

“We both play Here Be Monsters and became friends last summer though we lived several hundred miles apart,” the couple said.  “We will always be grateful to the makers of Here Be Monsters for creating the virtual world in which we met.”

To celebrate the big day, Gamesys commissioned a Here Be Monsters themed cake from legendary Seattle bakery The Sweet Side.

Michael Heywood, Executive Producer of Here Be Monsters was delighted for the couple.

“Everybody on the Here Be Monsters team sends a huge congratulations to Lisa and Chris on their wedding! Seeing players form real communities and relationships in the game makes us all very proud, and we’re very glad to have played a small part in their happiness.”
